KOTTAYAM  Parliament constituency consists of  Vaikom, Kaduthruthy, Ettumanur, Kottayam ,Puthuppally, Pala and Piravom assembly segments 

Election Results – History 

1984: K. Suresh Kurup, Communist Party of India (Marxist) 

 1989: Ramesh Chennithala, Indian National Congress

 1991: Ramesh Chennithala, Indian National Congress 

 1996: Ramesh Chennithala, Indian National Congress 

 1998: K. Suresh Kurup, Communist Party of India (Marxist) 

 1999: K. Suresh Kurup, Communist Party of India (Marxist) 

 2004: K. Suresh Kurup, Communist Party of India (Marxist)

In 2004 elections Suresh Kurup won with a majority of 42914. Kurup polled 3,39,697 votes against his nearest rival Anto Antony of Congress(I) who had 2,97,545 votes. The BJP candidate, B. Radhakrishna Menon, registered an impressive tally of 52,919, nearly 10,000 votes more than in the last Lok Sabha elections, and the highest recorded by any BJP candidate in the Kottayam Lok Sabha segment.

But after 5 year the delimitation process of the Election Commission has changed the geographical map of Kottayam Parliamentary constituency. Inclusion of Pala has propelled the UDF to give the seat to Kerala Congress Mani group. K.M Mani in turn was quick to grab this opportunity to use this as a second chance to his son Jose K Mani. Mani is putting money on the large Christian vote share in the newly formed constituency. The  face off of between the heads of the church and the LDF government is also expected to help them towards victory.

 LDF in turn has decided to fight back  with their sitting  MP   K.Suresh Kurup of  CPM. The capability and personality definitely gives an upper hand for Mr.Kurup over Mr. Jr.Mani but the political brains of  Mr.K M Mani can do wonders in this election.

  1. Jose K Mani is a growing leader of future politicians , I admire him for his KERALA VIKASANA YATRA which has given a new dimension for tomorrows Kerala while he was YOUTH FRONT president , yes he was the leader against destruction ideology of Marxian youth. I strongly believe that he will win this election with high margin.
